indian army short service commission give us lot of good opportunity to do something to our country. one of my cousion brother has join the indian army. he is really enjoying it, when it will get retired from the army. he will get preference in applying for job in government institutions.

Country: India

Country: India
more for army officers? i feel army is creating unnecessary hype on pay commission report. because the young boys who join army with a second class degree(the ss and direct entries) in their hand are well aware of the fact that they are going to become only a second class officer (in compare to other class one officers in govt of india)in indian army. the only exception may be the nda boys .but then the government must advertise all the facts about army through media like 90 percentof you will be thrown out of army at the age of 54 years.before that at the age of 42 years 80 percent of you will be proved that you are that only those chaps join army who are looking forward for spiritual satisfaction and require minimum amount of money.

army an option for youth? no…….. never …………… why? to get the answer read the lines below very carefully and seriously. in an organisation where 80 percent of officers get superceded at the service of just 16-17 years it means that 80 percect get no promotion after the age of around 38/39 years and start waiting for retirement till their age is 54 years. not only this, once they get superceded at the rank of lt col (at the age of 38/39 years) they are forced to stay in the pay scale of 15100β€” in this pay scale they reach at the maximum of this pay scale at the service of just 22 years (it means at the age of 43/44 years). now just imagine when this lot of officers interact with young boys in civil do you expect them to give a good image of army? this superceded lot which is increasing every years at the rate of approximately 500/600 will impact much more than any other advertisement campaign by army. this country is not giving army officers even equal to what any other class one job officer is getting (just forget ias /ips for a moment)the calculations in support of this fact is given at the end of this article. in ima the first thing is taught is that β€œwhen rape is enevitable enjoy it” that is what all army men who are forced to stay in army due various reasons are doing it. no amount of disscussion can bring the realities of army life. mind you it is worse than your imagination. if you want to do something for army at least put them equal to other class one job. do not try to make brigadier of general just give them the minimum basic pay scale which is being given to any other class one job. for example in any other class one job all officers who are directly selected and start with the pay scale of 8000 –13500. 100 percent of them achieve the pay scale of 16400β€”22400 at the service of 15/16 years . at least give this much to army also. at present only 20 percent ( colonel rank)go into that pay scale that too upper limit is just 19350 for them it is suggested that put all lt col in pay scale of 16400β€”22400 at the service of 15/16 years and forget about there promotions. also let them serve till the age of 58 years. shortage of officers in army atleast put them equal to other class one jobs the table given below shows the pay scale of few class one jobs in indian government ias ips university lecturers army the pay scale includes the rank pay 8000-13500 0 years 0 years 0 years 0 years (8250-10050) 1000-15200 4 years (10650-15850) 4 years 4 years 4years (10000β€”11800) 12000-16500 9 years(12750-16500 9 years 9 years 9years (13125-16050) 14300-18300 13 years (15100-18300) 13 years does not exist 13 years (15100-18700) 16400-20000 does no exist 14-16 years rank–dig (100 percent of direct ips officers reach upto this level) 17 years 100 percent of lecturers reach at this level 17-18 years (17100-19350) (only 20 percent of direct commisioned army officers reach at this level) 18400-22400 16 years (100 percent of direct ias officers reach upto this level) —– —– β€”β€”- the conclusion 1. the indian army officers are not even equal to any other class one job of indian government. 2. every xyz who joins any class one job in india is sure shot to reach the pay scale of 16400β€”22400. 3. on joining indian army a young boy can not even hope to get the what other class one job officers get. 4. only 2o percent can hope to go beyond the rank of lt col in army . it means only 20 percent of young boys who join as an army officer can hope to get the pay scale of 16400β€”22400 or more ( note the point here that in every other class one job all xyz officers who join initially gets this pay scale). 5. the above point indicates that 80 percent of army officers (who has more than 17 /18 years of service are rejected and dejected 6. now a request to pay commission army officers never hope to get what ias gets. but kindly give them what other class one job officers are getting. that means the pay scale of 16400β€”22400. the solution 1. there is a simple solution for this problem. just put the lt col in the pay scale of 15100β€”22400 instead of 15100β€”18700 and this will ensure that army officers get atleast what other class one job officers are getting

please dont make the mistake of joining indian army. i will give three solid reasons for it:- 1 promotions r slower than other govt organization and life is harder. 2 after 6th pay commission indian army officer has even become junior to police/crpf/cisf etc officers in status if u compare them with veing same yrs of service. 3. when u r reqd by ur parents and family be rest assured u will not be there on the name ntional securit. 4. if u die, after death ur family will be made to struggle for every thing. 5. u will loose ur social circle at ur home town and will feel the pinch after retirement. 6. indian army offrs unlike other organisation r not given uniform pension based on ur rank. 7. if not promoted u wil retire equal to a director that too if u put in 26 yrs of service , so even state govt officers r better in status then army officer. even after all this u want to join then please go ahead.

first of all it is necessary to understand that the youths with 'second class' degree as mentioned by one of our friends is a wrong way of measuring someone's calibre. we see many so called many talented people with iit-iim degrees adding no value to the business in corporate world. marks scored in a degree are not at all a guarantee of a person being capable. we have seen many brave people like maj. parameswaran and many others who were direct entries in ss and other routes to join army. these people won param veer chakra and ashok chakra on the battlefield. it is acceptable that army is not a lucrative career option because of discriminatory treatment in terms of pay scales. also the promotion to the rank of colonel is not fairly done. under the title of 'confidential' many non deserving officers climb the ladder while the deserving ones get superceded. the superceded officers are treated as liabilities no matter how they perform. they are out of race for the rank of brigadier even if they prove their calibre. huge difference between good and successful officers makes the life boring for the superceded lt. colonels.
